He was born April 13, 1926, at Saint Marys Hospital in Rochester, to Fern and Erma Wilson of Taopi. He married Katherine L. Ulrick on July 28, 1945, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Adams. During World War II, he served in the Philippines with the Army and the Army Air Corps. He retired in 1987 after 40 years as a cereal chemist, working for Shellabarger Milling, Robin Hood Flour and International Multifoods throughout the Midwest.

Mr. Wilson was active in Boy Scouts for 23 years. He began as a Den Dad and served several years as Scoutmaster for Troop 62 in Wabasha. He spent many summer vacations at the scout camp in Lake City, and later Crow Wing, Minn., and received the Scouting Silver Beaver service award. He was a lifelong member of American Legion Post 50 and worked as Post Commander of VFW Post 4086, both in Wabasha.

He is survived by his wife; children, Bradley (Beth), Bonnie King, Brian (Julie) and Bruce, eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by a son, Joseph, in infancy, and a brother, Glenn.
